In an effort to get more exposure for my book, I’m looking for online blog reviews. If you are willing to read my book and post a review on your blog and in the Amazon book store, I will send you a gift copy of the e-book. I want to make it clear that although I’d like only good reviews, I’m not asking specifically for a good review, just an honest one. It’s a fun weekend, beach-read type of book.
What’s the plot? In a nutshell, you know how every now and then in life you royally screw something up and you wish that future you would have traveled back in time to warn you about that situation? Well, what if future you did travel back in time, but he or she is a complete a-hole?
Sound like a fun read? If you’re interested in a free Kindle copy, put your e-mail that is associated with your Amazon account (so you can download it to your Kindle) in the comments section here and I will send you a gift download for my book!
Have a great Friday and a great weekend! ~Phil
This has nothing to do with the recent release of my humorous suspense novel Time To Lie now available for Amazon Kindle. Paperbacks coming soon! Have a great Monday! ~Phil
Although that is a picture of the mixed mystery meat we’ve all had at one time or another, I’m talking about online spam, or advertising that becomes a nuisance, kind of like me at a party after a couple drinks.
A group of people, writers, who are probably all really nice people, often transform from these nice people into evil werewolf spammers under the light of a
full moon new book release. As you may know, yesterday I released my first book in 3 1/2 years and it was published by an actual publisher! As you can imagine, I’m pretty excited about this and want to please my publisher by having a lot of people read my book so that he invites me back to write another.
I realize that the blogosphere is at least 50% writers who are all telling you to buy their books,
but you should buy mine because it’s way better than theirs. but I don’t want to become that werewolf spammer that forces people to avoid their blog because it becomes about nothing other than their book.
So, I’m going to ask you, my wonderful readers of many years, if I get a little too spammy, to feel free to tap me on the shoulder in the form of a comment or e-mail and say, Phil, dial it down a notch on the book promo. Just write the funny stuff you usually do and the readers will come.
Have a great Sunday everyone! (buy my book!) ~Phil
Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr aren’t my friends, yet. But you are. Tomorrow is a big day in my life. I’ve realized the dream of every writer by getting signed by a publisher, Amber Cove Publishing. Tomorrow is the day my book comes out from the publisher. I’d really like it to go well.
Most people don’t realize that there are probably only a handful of authors on the planet whose books get advertised or get a display in a real bookstore. My publisher is not a big publisher and doesn’t have an advertising budget. My job doesn’t end once I’ve written my book.
Now the real job starts, I have to promote my book! I also don’t have an advertising budget. That’s where you come in, if you are so inclined to be kind. Tomorrow, when my book is in the Amazon Kindle store, I’ll put a post on my blog including the synopsis and the link to Amazon. If you’ve ever laughed or chuckled at my blog even once, would you mind either re-blogging that post tomorrow or sharing it to Facebook? If I could, I’d come over and cut your lawn to repay you, but since that’s not possible, you will forever have my gratitude.
If you buy it and read it, I’m doubly grateful to you for taking a chance and spending some of your hard earned money to buy my book and using your valuable time to read it. Don’t worry, my blog isn’t going to turn into a constant ad for my book. I’ll keep churning out humorous blog posts.
Thank you ~Phil
